Hope I'm not misrepresenting anyone here, but I think the utility of this function for [Con|La]TeX[t] users is not so much in being able to add comments oneself in the input file(s) (though this has its uses), but in being able to send a draft PDF to non-TeX-savvy co-authors +/or editors and giving them (more or less) free reign to add their comments to it, if possible w/o completely destroying any security. (I'm currently having to generate RTF or "Word HTML" drafts for such purposes.)
